The Liberty Middle School (LMS) Scholastic Book Fair will take place
Tuesday, June 7 through Friday, June 10. Every book will be Buy One,
Get One Free.
The school would like to invite parents to our school to share in
this celebration of books and reading.
“Not only does the book fair help raise funds to purchase
essential classroom and library resources, it also helps fund
events like Author Day and encourages reading among our students,”
LMS Librarian Jill Parks said.
This is the perfect opportunity to stock up on books for summer
reading. As students grow older, it is so important to keep books
in their lives, she said. Students who remain readers now are more
likely to be lifelong learners. Readers develop larger
vocabularies, a greater knowledge of the world, and higher
academic achievement. In fact, studies indicate that being a
reader is more predictive of success than intelligence, economic
background, or gender.
The fair will provide a wide variety of books specifically
selected to appeal to middle school interests. Students will
discover books that are entertaining, inspirational, and a
resource for dealing with emerging emotions. In addition, our fair
will have books for elementary aged readers as well as bestsellers
that adults will find interesting and useful.
The fair will be open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday this week
from 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. and on Friday from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. Please,
stop in the LMS Library to browse and find books that can help
your child stay connected with reading. If none of these times
work for you, please contact Mrs. Parks at 845-292-5400 ext. 5219
or firstname.lastname@example.org make an appointment. Each student will
attend the fair with their English Language Arts classes. We
encourage you to discuss the fair with your child to determine
what books he or she may want to add to their personal collection.
